Spring Flower Combinations, a May Day Bouquet
In honor of May Day,
it seems only fitting to share with you my favorite spring pairings.
My garden beds are looking rather like a big bouquet,
and I have been admiring how well the blooms compliment each other.
Forget-me-nots and lily of the valley,
a match of toe-tingling sweetness.
I must confess, I did not dream this pairing up on my own.
The forget-me-nots showed up one day of their own accord,
and the lilys had been planted a few years ago and never did a thing.
It's my opinion they needed each other.
I love how these tulips reflect the mauve of the winter blooming heather behind, accented by the white birch bark.
Incidentally, a combination very practical for seasonal extension.
A primary color combo, not as common in the pastels of spring.
Red tulips, bluebells and yellow Iceland poppies, set off in a rockery
with a picket fence for height.
And for those of you who may not have a garden bed to enjoy,
here is a pot packed with boxwood for winter structure and height, vinca, a sturdy ground-cover which started blooming in March,
and a yellow ranuncula for a bright, cheery face.
Wishing you all a May Day packed with blooms!
